Peet’s or no Peet’s?
Excitement and anticipation greeted the announcement back in December that San Carlos would finally get its own Peet’s Coffee. Months of speculation ended about the future of the old Blockbuster Video location on the corner of Laurel and Cherry Streets when Peet’s stepped to the plate and signed a lease for this location. It was even announced at the City Council meeting and received a great response.
At the time, it was thought that Peet’s would be up and running by Spring 2011. But as several of you recently noted, Spring 2011 is here….now. And there’s not much happening at that location. Is something up?
Permits in Process.
I checked with City Hall about this, and I was assured that things are moving forward. In order for Peet’s to set up shop at this location, they needed to obtain two separate permit approvals. One of those permits has now been approved, and the other is close to issuance. Once that happens, the transformation of the building should happen much more quickly. So while a Spring ’11 opening was probably a bit too optimistic, you can probably expect Peet’s to swing open their doors in late summer.
For Peet’s lovers, it will be worth the wait.
